When to see an optometrist

We know it is not always easy to know when it is time to see an optometrist, so we have gathered these quick tips.  


What About Blurry Vision?

Blurry vision can happen at any time of our lives, but it is often an indicator that your eyesight has deteriorated in some way. It is often due to aging, but flashes of light could indicate a retinal detachment or tear.  

What About Frequent Headaches?

Headaches are your body’s way of telling you to slow down. You may get headaches when you are fatigued or stressed, but it could also be an indicator of deterioration in your vision, which warrants an immediate optical exam. Chronic headaches are serious and should be addressed right away to alleviate pain and hopefully prevent more serious issues.  

What About Squinting?

The earliest vision correction issues are often discovered when a teacher or other school staff member notices that a child is squinting at the board. It just takes some careful observation. You might notice squinting by members of your family, friends, or co-workers. In school-age children, the school nurse or teacher may mention squinting, but it is still important to get an expert opinion from our pediatric optometrist. 

What About Eye Fatigue?

Eye pain and fatigue can present themselves as red or itchy eyes. Initially, you might even mistake it for allergies or environmental sensitivities. When the pain and discomfort continue, you may realize that it is not as simple as allergies. Eye fatigue can become increasingly problematic if you spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen for school or work.
